The Swingles: Folklore Album Launch with special guests Twelfth Day and EFFRA
2 Regent's Park Road
For more than half a century, The Swingles have pushed the boundaries of vocal music, releasing more than 50 recordings, winning five Grammy awards, and appearing on numerous film and TV soundtracks including Sex and the City and Glee. The group’s versatility has led to collaborations with artists as diverse as the Modern Jazz Quartet, Jamie Cullum and Labrinth. The seven young singers that make up today’s London-based group are driven by the same innovative spirit that has defined The Swingles since they first made waves in the 1960s.
Special guests tonight include acclaimed folk duo Twelfth Day (fiddle player Catriona Price and harpist Esther Swift) as well as contemporary folk band EFFRA.
“Stunning reinventions of songs by the likes of John Martyn, Elbow and Mumford & Sons, with subtle beatboxing and audacious harmonies… superhero singing to truly raise goosebumps.” The Guardian
